Ooh, that's even cooler you made the photo. And I think the Kewpie is great - as a souvenir it seems to suggest an interesting back story. I think a witch could likely find all kinds of enjoyable things to do at a carnival. ;)
That came out really well! Love all the little details. My favorites are the clutching skeleton hands, the bird's nest, the "class reunion" pic at the top, and the little hat on the kewpie doll - that's funny.
Wow, you are seeing great stuff! We've been hoping to make a trip to Yellowstone sometime, and now I really really want to go. I love the wolves and the elk (live and stuffed!)
The live elk looks startled to see Flat Talia in person - maybe wasn't expecting a celebrity to show up in the park. ;)
Nice job, Ellie! He's (she's?) definitely got a different personality than the ghoul in the first post, but it's a creepy personality so all good! That's a huge win for this early in the season! Great stuff!
Sounds like an awesome theme and you've got some brilliant ideas.
I'm not much help but here's a thread on the Kaleidescope/Fire & Ice lights you're talking about (I think there's a few pages with videos of each). I believe Lowe's and Walmart both carried versions of them that were a bit different.
